Homemade Granola

INGREDIENTS

 

  • 2 cups raw, whole rolled oats
  • ½ cup sliced raw almonds
  • ¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup (100% maple syrup, preferably grade-b)
  • 1 Tbsp  raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • sprinkle ground flax seeds  
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 large pinch fine sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350º. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl & use your clean hands to mix and toss to coat. The coconut oil might be liquid or solid.  (it has a melting point of about 75ºF.) Run the glass jar under warm water to melt if solid. Spread the mixture in a thin layer on a baking sheet & bake for 10-12 minutes, until very lightly toasted. Mix – bake until lightly brown.  Cool before serving or storing. This granola can be kept in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 2 weeks.

Note: It is very easy to over cook this granola.
